putter question?

Recommended Posts

Not that my putter is bad, I basically two putt (averaged 38 putts for 18 in Hawaii) but my mallet style was a knock off in the first place, mallet style, and I was at Richard's Sporting goods today. My current putter has a plumbers bend in the hozle (I think that is what it is called) and I tried a couple different putters that the shaft was centered on the middle of the putter head. Does that give you an advantage? I tried a couple I liked but I don't want to spend the coin if there is a reason for that style of putter head. I was going to swing a few different irons but i was out of time and I think I will get a club fitting before I look seriously at new irons. Thanks for any expertise.

My current putter face is getting banged up in the bag, I will get a cover for it if I can find a cheapo one.

I also looked at push carts, a couple of guys I played with HI had them and they were pretty slick. One I really liked was the clicgear 2.0......I saw one at the store and told the wifey I would like one for fathers day......anyone else use a push cart? I like to walk but after 15 holes in the sun, I get worn down. The carts aren't cheap but in 10 rounds of cart rental it would be paid for

With putters. It is what ever feels good, and looks good to you! That is why they make so many different styles. And ! Price doesn't always mean it is a better putter. Try as many different ones as you can. If the one you really like is an exspensive one, ask if they have a used one. I play a Scotty Cameron new port . I love it, but didn't have the $280 for a new one. Bought mine used for $100 couple of years ago. Also check out [YouNeedAuthorization] once you have decided on the one you want. Many times you can save yourself some money.

Delmuts hit it right on the nose. The most important thing is how it feels to you. You have to be comfortable with it. Second of all if it looks good to you and the price is right take it. I have an Odyssey 2 ball and only paid $110 for it on Austads online store. So just search around and see whats out there that you like.

With putting, hands down the most important thing is CONFIDENCE and feel. A few years ago I had no confidence and did something as simple as putting a new grip on my putter. I put one of those oversized grips on. It felt SOOOO much better in my hand. My putting improved a ton. If there is anything that can improve your confidence do it. There is nothing worse than standing over an 8 footer and knowing you are going to miss it.

I went to one of the big golf stores in town,I am a lefty, not much for choices compared to a righty, 8-10- putters vrs, 50. But you are right every one felt different, too bad the one that felt right was also the most expensive one. lol

I got a clicgear 2.0 push cart last spring and love it. It's very solid and well built. Folded down it's compact and it's quick to set up. It comes with a short video to show you how. Because it's a three wheeler none of the cart frame sits on the ground and it will take off on hills so you must remember to set the brake.

For gloves and putters I buy from an online outlet called "MG Golf". The putter is a model 415CR. They will size it and grip it to your specs. I bought the standard set up, used it a while and had it shortened and re-griped to my prefrences at a local golf shop for $12. There is a 60 day no questions return policy on it. If you order it customized and return it there is a re-stocking fee. Nice putter, I really like it.

I have a center shafted Odyssey White Hot putter and I love it. But like everyone say's, it's what feels best and what you can keep straight that matters. Narrow it down to 3 or 4 different styles and putt with them until they start to eliminate themselves, then buy the last one in your hands. smile

    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
